The annual five-mile Poppy Run will be held at the Princess Royal Sports Arena on Sunday, November 13.

Thirteen years ago the first Poppy Run started and finished on the Tommy Clay Track, with British sporting heroes Tanni Grey-Thompson and Mick Hill there for the launch.

This year will be the first time since then that the Boston and District AC-run event has been held at the venue.

Over the years the event has raised considerable funds for the Boston branch of the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

The 5k Family Fun Run starts on the track at 10am with the main event, the five-mile run, starting at 11am after a one minute’s silence.

Entry forms may be collected from the PRSA and from BADAC’s website, with entries closing on November 7.
